You love it, we love it and it’s here!!
It’s two fingering weight yarns from Lichen and Lace.

Lichen and Lace

One is a delicate, one-ply, superwash merino for shawls, scarves and sweaters, and the other is 80/20; a blend of superwash merino and nylon (in that order) for sock knitting.

this?

If not, you might want to come by The Knit Café this weekend to get a look. Our order from Lichen and Lace is selling fast, and no wonder with beauties like these ones.
If you are drooling on your keyboard and wondering what you might knit with this luscious yarn then check out The Knit Café’s 504 King West pattern. It’s free and so fun to knit and it will give you lots of opportunities to play with all the colour possibilities available in our Lichen and Lace pallet.

504 King West

I couldn’t resist putting together some combos myself. For this project you will need two main colours and three accent colours. In these pics the Lichen and Lace is paired with Koigi Mini Skeins. Each Mini is just enough yarn to make one stripe on the selvedge edge of the 504 King West.

These two are paired with a few Madelinetosh Unicorn Tails in Edison Bulb, and Rainwater, the other skeinette is by Koigu.

If you need some support while knitting your 504 King West pattern you are in luck.  The Knit Cafe’s has just announced a new class offered over the spring and summer called “Asymmetric Summer Scarf Workshop” where you can get lots of guidance and tips while you knit your scarfette.

Yarn treats from Lichen and Lace

Despite the cold outside it is starting to feel real Springy in here! We just put out a wonderful display of fingering (sock) weight yarn from lovely hand dyer Lichen and Lace.

We have a divine selection of both one ply beauties and a plyed sock weight blended with nylon. We love them both. Thank you Megan!
Megan is the artist behind these pretty colours. You may already know Megan  as she is the founder of Lettuce Knit formerly in Kensington Market in Toronto. She now lives in New Brunswick and has invested her considerable talents into creating these beautiful skeins of yarn.
Come in and see them real soon.

We have them paired up with some sample of Knit Café projects that take sock weight yarn. See Trip to the Island on the left and Soho Scarf on the right (in the pic on top).
